Many Polish hospitals are looking for money to help them expand, but local authorities often lack the funds for modernisation projects. The Kujawsko-Pomorskie regional administration has combined various forms of EU financing to upgrade Toruń's Rydygier hospital and improve healthcare for local people.

The Kujawsko-Pomorskie Region. By combining this with money from its own budget and other EU financing, the region has extended Toruń’s Rydygier hospital. A 57 million loan from the European Investment Bank, which is financing the hospital’s expansion, will allow additional rooms to be adapted to the milk bank’s needs. This will ensure that it operates in accordance with the internationally recognised Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point food safety system.
